My Couric Related Expertise

On occasion, I check the site stats for the blog. I admit it. I used to be rabid about it, trying to figure out how people found me and who they were so I could hide in their bushes and pelt them with sparkles. (Okay, that last part may be slightly exaggerated. I admit it.) Lately, I check the stats once every couple of weeks just in case there's something interesting for me to talk about.

I've discovered a disturbing trend. Somehow, some WAY, I've become an expert on Katie Couric's body parts.

I'm an expert on a lot of things. If you've been around for a REALLY long time, you might remember my successful campaign to top the Google results for the search term "Batman eyebrows." I'm also the world's foremost authority on the merpire. These titles sit comfortably on my shoulders. I'd happily put them on business cards if I had any. But World Renouned Expert on Katie Couric's Legs?

I hang my head in shame.

Out of the top 10 search results that led people to my blog in the past week, three of them were related to me or my book. (YAY! I LIKE YOU!) Then we have a couple of random elements like hand signs, Katy Perry's carousel dress, zombie penguins, and Batman's eyebrows (no joke). And then? Three searches involving Katie Couric and her various body parts.


I've decided that there's nothing to do but embrace my Couricky expertise. I'm sending you all a holiday card with a hyperactive Couric in a sombrero.

I'm all about giving the people what they want.

I do love me some Katie Couric. It was my dream to be know before I became a world renowned novelist. What the hell happened????lol

My number one visited blog post was about the True Blood Rolling Stone cover, titled 'Porn or Art?'. I think peeps were just looking up porn that day. I'm a little shamed.

That was funny.

And a little bit creepy.

What do you use to check your blog stats? Just curious.:)

Marsha, I LOVE that True Blood cover. *wipes drool from face*

And Larissa, I have site meter installed on my blog, which I really like. But when I'm lazy, I just use the Blogger stats.

I'm frequently lazy. :)

Haha, that's funny. I always wonder how that stuff leads people to our blogs. But hey, it got them here right?
